West Lafayette's native son Danny Anthrop is the player for today. I don't know if it's just me or if this is the generally accepted thought process but Danny is the key to this football season on offense. Yes, the QB is of course important but we all saw what happened last year when Anthrop went down to injury. In case you don't remember, the offense absolutely tanked with him. The team couldn't do ANYTHING without him on the field. His health will be a key concern for the Boilermaker football team this year.
